Thor: Love and Thunder is going to be very exciting. Phase 4 has expanded the MCU in many ways. There has been a lot more diversity both on-screen and behind the scenes in terms of talent. There have also been a lot of wackier and crazy concepts in the shows. Like the sitcom world of WandaVision, the time travel madness in Loki, or the Celestials in Eternals. Love and Thunder is only going to continue the craziness.

Thor: Love and Thunder follows Chris Hemsworth’s Thor on his search for inner peace. The return of Jane Foster, played by Natalie Portman, interrupts his search. Jane is now Mighty Thor and wields Mjlonir. They will also be joined by Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie. The movie promises to keep up the craziness of Thor: Ragnarok but with even more madness from the comics. Previous Thor movies shied away from embracing the comics but it seems like that has changed.

Thor Writer Reveals That Kevin Feige Refused To Use Goats

In a recent tweet Zack Stentz, a writer on the original Thor film, revealed that the goats featured in the Thor: Love and Thunder trailer and merch were originally proposed for the film back in 2009. You can see the full unedited tweet below. The goats, Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder, feature heavily in mythology and comics. They have not been in the MCU before.

Getting a behind-the-scenes look at the MCU’s creative process is always awesome. It is good to know that MCU is letting directors and writers be more creative. The early phases of the MCU are enjoyable but they definitely played it safe. Since the MCU is now a proven success it makes sense for Marvel Studios to let the films take more risks and use more wild concepts from the comics. Hopefully, we continue to see these creative freedoms even if they aren’t always successful.

What did you think of this news? Are you excited to see Marvel Studios allow more creative freedom? Let us know by mentioning @ReviewedCinema on Twitter, and don’t miss Thor: Love and Thunder when it premieres exclusively in theaters on July 8, 2022.
